October 25th is Stampin' Up!'s actual 25th birthday, and to celebrate for one week, starting today, you can get 25% off 25 stamp sets!

Shop online at my Stampin' Up! store to have them delivered to your door.

If you place an order over $300 online, you can claim Stampin' Rewards similar to our hostess benefits. Just select your gifts before you close the order.

If you place a smaller order, and include the hostess code RD2Q39CY on the order, you will be in the running for any hostess benefits earned between now and October 28th.


Also starting today, you can order the Stampin' Up! Thinlets Card Dies. Excitement!

I will be demonstrating the Circle Card Thinlet at Caulfield Stitches and Craft Show this Thursday and Saturday. Come along and take a look. Or, if the Youtube video has got you hooked, you can go ahead and order them in my online store.

Stampin' Up! at Girls Only Festival

This weekend just gone my team and some of our lovely demonstrator friends had the only craft stand at the Melbourne Girls Only Festival (GO Show).

We set up the Stampin' Up! stand on Friday afternoon.

GO show setting up

We're lucky we don't have tonnes of shelving and stock to set up and display. We just make our posters of card and scrapbook projects in the weeks leading up to the show and on the day we come in and velcro them to the walls!

Here's the poster I made using the Chalk Talk Stamp Set and matching Framelits.

I'm sorry it's not the best quality photo, but the lighting in the stand and using one's mobile phone to take the pic is never going to make a great photo!

I will share close up photos of some of the cards over the next few days.

Oh, and what do we do on the stand?

That's right! We do what we LOVE!!

Thanks Alison Douglas for sneaking in this action shot of me giving someone a lecture about how to stamp! LOL

At the GO Show we had three prizes of Stampin' Up! products to give away. The draw has taken place and I am very pleased to be able to announce the winners! Drum Roll Please!!

Prize three went to Danielle from Sydenham!

Prize two goes to Isabella from Kinglake!

And the major prize (an enormous hamper of Stampin' Up! goodies) goes to - wait for it . . . 

Stacey from Cranbourne!  Woohoo! And Congratulations everyone!!

You will be contacted in the next day or two to arrange for us to either drop off or post your parcel of goodness to you!

We had a lovely weekend - very different from our Craft Shows which we normally do, and for which we are also preparing.

We'll be at the Caulfield Stitches and Craft Show from Thursday 24th to Sunday 27th October. I'll be on the stand on Thursday and Saturday and this year we are running a Make & Take Class at 12noon each day. Its a 50minute class in the Make & Take Classrooms, and you need to book at the stand before the class.

I do hope to see you there, or at our Create, Care and Share event on November 9th at Mulgrave.

See you in the next couple of days with lots of lovely card creations!

A Stampin' Up! party is a creative event you host at your home, where you invite your friends to enjoy an exciting project demonstration provided by a Stampin' Up! demonstrator (me!). When you host a party, you'll see new project ideas, learn different techniques, make a project, and have fun with people you enjoy--all while earning free products based on your party's sales.

As a hostess, you'll choose a date for your party, then invite your friends and family into your home to stamp and have fun with you. I will help you make it the perfect event for you and your friends!


You can expect to make beautiful projects at your party. You and your guests will find that it's easy to unleash your creativity when you have your own personal creative coach there to guide you. Plus, with our quarterly mini catalogs, there are always new products to see and learn about!

Contact me today to book your very own creative party.  And make sure it's in October so you can receive extra FREE goodies!
